Ducks agree to three-year deal with '05 draft pick
ANAHEIM, Calif. -- The Mighty Ducks of Anaheim announced Wednesday that they have agreed to a three-year contract with right winger Bobby Ryan, the second overall pick of the 2005 draft.
Per club policy, financial terms were not disclosed.
Ryan leads the Owen Sound of the Ontario Hockey League with 30 goals and 62 assists in 55 games this season.
"Bobby Ryan is an exciting player that we are happy to officially add to our young group of skilled forwards," Anaheim general manager Brian Burke said. "He has a rare combination of size and skill and we look forward to his continued development."
The 6-2, 213-pound Ryan scored 37 goals and had 52 assists in 62 games with the Sound during the 2004-05 season. He is the highest pick the Ducks have had since they selected defenseman Oleg Tverdovsky with the second pick in 1994.
